The beauty industry has a waste problem, and it’s not just the packaging. It’s estimated that between 20% and 40% of all beauty products never get used – unsold, expired or sat on bathroom shelves for eternity. That’s a lot of costly formula simply being thrown away.
Single-dose beauty, however, is turning the tide with pre-measured portions remaining stable far longer than the average bottled product. But portion packaging is a concern, and we’re backing encapsulation as a plastic-free alternative. Catalent’s CosmoPods are an ideal solution for single-dose beauty without the waste – but could their reach expand far beyond the world of skincare and hair care?
